The Writer's Almanac

Quite possibly the best thing on public radio.  The Writer's Almanac with Garrison Keillor is a show that I would sometimes wake up to on my clock radio early in the morning.  I haven't heard it in years but, knowing that Garrison Keillor is still out there reading interesting poetry and tidbits about goings on "this day in history" for the literary world, punctuated by his homey nose whistle and deliciously moist 'p's and sharp 's's, makes me feel safe and warm in the cold hard world.

Plus, the fact that this picture of him can be found on his Facebook page. 

 I know Garrison ~ I hate the necessity of it as well.

Sandy Hook Elementary

To the families, teachers, members of the community affected by the horrible events of 12/14/12 in Newtown, Connecticut,  know that you are in our hearts.  We hugged our children tight today knowing others would never be able to hug theirs again in this life.  Our hearts are broken for you.  We can not imagine your pain.

Mali Mish

These people are living my dream.  Plus an extra kid.  Plus a cat.  In an Airstream (the best of all travel trailers).

A new kind of explorer

This man travels and explores the way I can only dream about at this moment.  Wandering Earl is a pretty outstanding blog about a man who has been traveling on a small budget with all of his possessions fitting into his small pack for the last twelve years.  His goal:  to be a global citizen.  There are so many lessons to be learned from people like Earl.  Hear's to living one day at a time and being mindful of the people around us.  Thanks Earl!

Four Lights Tiny House Company

The creator of Tumbleweed Homes has split with his lovechild company and joined  (or created I can't tell) Four Lights Tiny House Company.  Jay Shafer's designs immediately caught my attention the first time I saw them.  He's basically the reason I am so enchanted with the Tiny House movement.
